A jet-black train traverses the infinite and abstract landscape, its destination unknown. From a distance, its plume of smoke appears gentle—its steady chugging noises inviting. In closer proximity, however, the mechanism is a marvelous beast, its monstrous bellows sure to rattle any spectators to their core. It rapidly churns forward, forever thrashing.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Pop consists of various monochrome images, including cel animation and drawings. The title is a reference to the sound of a passing train, as well as pop art.

The animation won the second prize at the Zagreb Film Festival in Yugoslavia in 1974.

story 3/10
there's basically a train only going by the trails, it looks like some kind of animation test, but the interesting part is that you can imagine the story

art 9/10
it looks like it was made only using paper, and I LOVE that, it's pretty interesting because it looks like a drawning that everyone do on the paper, there's a movie called "The Point" that is draw and i simply love the art style of that movie, so i will love Pop's art too

sound 8/10
it's only the sound of a train, and the sound is good

characters 4/10
the character is a train, so there isn't so much ...

is something quite good actually. Nothing 'wow', but it's a simple thing. A train. I like to think that has a small meaning, but at the same time it's just a test or something like that. this will be a short enjoyment if you like small things from '70s. A train can tell us a history better than a person, quiet, running to somewhere and we don't know where. This is what are more funny, we don't know where we are going, but we still watching.

history: we are free to imagine.

art: good for '70s

soundtrack: just a train, simple and aesthetic.
